Piers Morgan asked for £5million to do famous TV show – but his parents threatened to disown him if he accepts | The Sun

PIERS Morgan demanded £5million to do I'm A Celebrity – but reveals his parents would disown him if takes it.

The TalkTV presenter told of their threats after naming the price it would take for him to go in the jungle.

Asked if he's planning on following in Matt Hancock's footsteps, Piers told The Sun at its Who Cares Wins awards: "I would rather shoot myself slowly with a slow moving bullet that corroded through every bone in my body before it finished me off than go into the jungle with people like Matt Hancock and munch kangaroo testicles. 

"My parents have actually said to me they would put up with anything – and I’ve put them through a lot – but not the jungle.

"It’s a step too far. That’s their red line. I’d get disowned."

Piers fuelled rumours he'd finally been persuaded to sign up to the gruelling reality show fronted by his pals Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly.

He tweeted: "Like I said, £5million and I'll come and munch kangaroo testicles. Not a penny less."

But his parents intervened and warned they'd cut him off he accepted ITV's offer.

Quizzed on his opinion of former health secretary Matt making it to the quarter finals of I'm A Celeb, Piers didn't hold back.

"I have no idea what the British public are doing," he ranted.
